Basic Wholegrain Waffles

This is another recipe from the Whole Foods for the Whole Family cookbook that I have.  I like how light these waffles are.  In the cook book they list a couple of measurements for some of the ingredients.  This is what I do.  For our family, I will double this recipe and this gives us a few to freeze for later breakfasts.


2 eggs, separated

1 1/2 cups milk

1/4 cup olive oil

2 Tablespoons brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups whole wheat flour

Beat egg whites until stiff.  In a large bowl, beat yolks with milk.  Add the remaining ingredients, beating after each addition.  Fold in the beaten egg whites.  Pour into lightly greased, pre-heated waffle iron and bake until golden brown.
